Drawings made on a weekly basis in 90 minutes or less from the live model. These date back to 1998, starting at the Art Academy of Cincinnati where I taught life drawing, then at University of Cincinnati and Xavier University. Since 2004 the drawings have been made at Manifest Drawing Center. While these are certainly selections from a much larger set of work, they are by no means offered as flawless examples of life drawing. The collection here, shown in a wall-grid much like I would show them in a formal gallery installation, reveal, like their subjects, the human nature of the disciplined drawer - focus, searching, struggle, and joy. The drawings shown here represent a reverse chronology of 16,200 life-minutes spent in intense observation and frozen pose by two people - myself and the model. They are an homage to time spent living.
